SSL and Exchange 2007

I need to clarify something per my 2007 exchange configuration.

First - I have 2 Exchange 2007 Servers in an Active/Passive cluster.  (Mailbox store, obviously)

I have 2 Exchange 2007 CAS and HUB servers network load balanced.

All are running on Server 2008.

That is my complete configuration.

The way I have been reading the information, do I just need to import the single certificate into exchange 2007 with the SAN cert containing all of the server names and their variations?  

Do I no longer need to configure IIS with the cert?  

I will be configuring RPC over HTTP as well as Outlook Web Access.

You don't use IIS at all for the SSL certificate configuration. It is all done through Exchange. The certificate will be seen through IIS manager, but it isn't managed via that tool.

When multiple servers are involved, the usual technique is to put all of the names in to a single certificate request on one of the server. Once the certificate request is complete then you export the certificate and its private key and import it to any other servers that need it.

Is there an article out there that decribes how to export the cert and private key and then import into the other servers?

You mean like the online help?

Everything is documented, the Exchange 2007 and higher documentation is some of the best product documentation that has been created.
